The Heart 2 Heart challenge this week is Mix and Match! We were asked to design a project using papers from different paper collections. I chose to use Hello Lovely and Uptown Fundamentals for these beautiful beach photos of my son and his family right before their second son was born.
I love how the gold foil striped paper from Uptown Fundamentals adds a little bling and elegance to the subtle colors of the Hello Lovely papers. Plus the Sea Glass print perfectly matched the color of the ocean in the photos!
Please head over to Heart 2 Heart Challenges to see the Mix and Match projects made the rest of the Ruby Design Team. Then be sure to share your own artwork for everyone to enjoy!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you all have an awesome week! Laurie
I am pleased to host the challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart. It’s a Black and White Tuxedo theme! I have always loved the simple elegance that a black and white color palette can give to a project and this was no exception. I created an all occasion card using the Hello Lovely Day to Day scrapbooking stamp set for the rose and leaves and the “hello” Thin Cut for my sentiment.
To embellish the Black and White Daisy cardstock card, I embossed the background panel with a vertical stripes embossing folder (now only available on Clearance), Black and White Shimmer Trim and cut the “hello” from black glitter paper.
Please take a look at the other stunning black and white projects created by the Heart 2 Heart Design team. Then join in the fun, create your own artwork and share with us! We really love to see what you all come up with!
Thanks for stopping by today! If you need any of the supplies I used for this project, please shop HERE!
This week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges, we were asked to create a project with a Falling in Love theme. Well, since Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, I decided to make a traditional Love card for someone special. However, I also have a secret love–the Sugar Rush paper collection!! There is just something about Pomegranate with Sea Glass and a sprinkle of Whisper and Blossom that is hard for me to resist!! And a second secret love I have is embossing folders, so I had to use a variety of those too!
You can find all the supplies I used to make this card HERE.

Thanks for stopping today–spread lots of sunshine! Laurie
This week I am double dipping! My project is for BOTH the Heart 2 Heart challenge (COLD HANDS, WARM HEARTS) and the Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge (SNOW MUCH FUN). Unfortunately these challenges are way too appropriate for those of you in the Midwest dealing with the huge ice storm slowly making its way across your area. Ice is so much “trickier” than plain old snow, so I hope all of my family and friends back in southeast Nebraska stay warm and safe! On the other hand, I will be enjoying the abnormally high temps here in the Florida panhandle! (Sorry, couldn’t resist…)
Now back to the challenges at hand–wouldn’t this layout be perfect for a special wintry photo?
All of my Cricut cuts are from the Flower Market cartridge by Close To My Heart. The background paper is from the Whimsy Fundamentals collection and the cardstock is New England Ivy, Glacier and White Daisy. It is hard to see from the photo, but the snowflakes and the “Winter Wonderland” were cut with white glitter cardstock.
Please stop by the Heart 2 Heart Challenges site and the Bitten by the Bug 2 site to check out the winter themed projects created by the two talented design teams. Then link up your own projects to share for even more inspiration! We love to see your artwork!
Thanks for stopping by! Do something AWESOME today!! Laurie
Happy New Year, Friends!
Welcome back to a new year of awesome challenges at Heart 2 Heart! For this first week in January, the challenge is to use Gold or Silver on a project. I chose to use the Uptown Fundamentals paper pack and the January Stamp of the Month to create an elegant black and gold all occasion card.
I stamped an image from the January Stamp of the Month (see below) and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. The image is mounted on a black mat trimmed with Gold Foil tape. I finished it off with a bow made from black and gold ribbon.
Now it’s your turn to create with Silver and Gold! Please link up your project at Heart 2 Heart–we love to see your artwork!
